HERE'S SOME tidbits of my three grand Children:
Philip( 24): Philip graduated with his BA from UC Santa Cruz last year. This year he flew out of the nest living on his own. He plays with his punk rock band and works part time at Zachary's pizza and at the UC Berkeley Theatre. UC Berkeley now hosts concerts.
Aix: ( 22): Alix and I have the same birthday( 12/20) and I am always 60 years older than her. She will be graduating from Cornell University next year. She was offered a well paying job at Eero here in San Francisco. Eero manufactures Wi-Fi mesh routers that extends and improves your Wi-Fi signal throughout the house by placing three Eero boxes around the house. Eero is a high-tech firm with typical perks such as a chef who prepares free lunch and dinner for their employees.
Marina ( 20): Marina is a sophomore at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo majoring in Kinesiology.
Yesterday, Dodie and his family with Ditas and Carenna give us a ride to Mountain View to celebrate Christmas with Macrine's niece, Lanie Jambalos Lazarte Chalfin and her husband Alex with their two kids, Wesley and Samantha. It was a long and hard day for Macrine but we had a grand time. The food and company was excellent. Special mention was Lanie's pot roast cooked to perfection. The above photo are some of the goodies Macrine and I received this Christmas.
Planning to Retire Soon!
If you are planning to retire in the Philippines soon, I suggest you visit several excellent websites on pro's and cons of retiring in the Philippines. However if you want to retire in the provinces, where life is simple, standard of living cheaper, less traffic congestion and pollution, availability of fresh seafood and vegetables compared to the big cities, my island province is the place for you! If this is your first time in my site, welcome. Please do not forget to read the latest national and international news in the right side bar of this blog.
